181 – A Review of the Decade with No Name 🍾

It’s the end of an era (well… actually a ‘decade’) and the last podcast of the year 😢 So we have a look back at the GOOD and the BAD of the last 10 years, where we discuss ice bucket challenges 🧊, selfies 🤳, emojis 😀, Neflix and lots of other from this decade! There’s lots of RnR Vocab, so stay with us as we move into 2020 and just keeeeep on ROCKin’! 👊

The RnR vocab that you will learn in today’s show:s

  • I would like to point out, the evening before the results were given…
  • it was a landslide
  • I should’ve stuck to my guns
  • The only small silver lining here is….
  • it’s the only thing getting me through this
  • although we are starting to run a little bit thin now
  • it was easy back in the day
  • Our friendship has seen through another decade
  • Grit your teeth and get through it
  • We’ve had our rocky patches
  • my body oozes health
  • Dan text me out of the blue
  • when it’s written, you have to be crystal clear
  • the anti-climax of not sneezing
  • Selfies have taken off
  • We had a disposable camera
  • it was just an excuse for people to look wacky
  • it seems a bit regressive for me
  • you looked like a twat
  • we had our work Christmas do
  • You can’t pull it off

    Hello Martin!!

    Thanks for the awesome podcast!!! It helps me a lot!!

    Just have one doubt. This “rocky patches” expression is correct? I couldn’t find it on Cambridge Dictionary, just the following options – go through a bad/difficult/rough/sticky patch


    Once again, thank you very much!!

      Hi Bruno! Sorry for the delayed response, I’ve only just seen this message. Yes it’s a common thing to say in England when talking about a relationship, “we went through a rocky patch” which means “we had a difficult period but in the end it was ok” – it’s a common thing to say when talking about relationships but it might just be British slang which is why you can’t find it.

      Hope this was useful and thanks for getting in contact, I always love to hear from listeners! 🙂
